We stay in San Sebastián‘s Parte Vieja – Old Town – because it’s where you’ll find the highest concentration of pintxos bars and restaurants. The pedestrian only streets make it easy and pleasant for small folk to walk and explore. When you perch on a patio for a drink and a snack, your kids can mingle with the dozens of other youngsters, scootering, chasing pigeons, jumping rope and generally having a good time, in between bites of croquetas.
The old town is situated between the port and the Urumea River with Mount Urgull, It’s the also the best place to live if you plan to visit San Sebastián’s Aquarium. It’s a 10 minute walk max from any part of the old town. San Sebastian’s gorgeous Belle Epoque carousel is also located within 5-10 minutes walking distance of old town in the Alderdi Eder gardens.
Accomodation: We partner with travel companies that we use for our family trips. You can find reasonable apartment rentals in the Parte Vieja ‘hood via Airbnb, and by booking through our family link you’ll get a travel credit.
